Plateau Vineyards

Plateau Vineyards Plateau Vineyards was established in 1994 and is the only winery licensed within the boundaries of the Santa Rosa Plateau. The founder of Plateau Vineyards, George M. Schaeffer, has resided on the Plateau since 1989. It was apparent to George after he settled into his new surroundings that the Santa Rosa Plateau shared many similarities with other legendary (wine) grape growing areas in California such as the Sonoma and Napa Valleys. Like these regions, the Santa Rosa Plateaus volcanic soils combined with the unique microclimate, created by its 2400' elevation and its close proximity to the ocean, were sure to produce grapes with distinct characteristics and intense flavors. Plateau Vineyards currently farms fifteen acres of Bordeaux grape varieties. These superior grapes, grown on the Santa Rosa Plateau, allow Plateau Vineyards to consistently craft fine wines with distinctive and memorable qualities.
